A Lawsuit is being filed against the state of Illinois claiming the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment is being violated by the same day voter registration law.

 

Illinois' Liberty Justice Center senior Attorney Jacob Huebert says the lawsuit is necessary because only counties with more than 100-thousand residents are required to accept voter registration on election day.
